----------------------------------------------------------------------
|Great song by underrated Rockabilly pioneer Dale Hawkins,           |
|known for being the father of Swamp Rock (Suzie Q), and for         |
|playing real raw Rockabilly. This however is a sweeter Pop          |
|song, it's great, it's played very much like Ritchie Valens'        |
|"Come on, Let's Go", and the background singers borrow from         |
|Buddy Holly's "I'm Gonna Love You Too".                             |
|                                                                    |             
|This is only the third song I'm learning by ear, so I can't say     |
|that this is the way it goes 100%, but it feels good when I play    |
|it, and I have re-written it a couple of times. The thing I'm       |
|most unsure of is the lyrics after you sing about his girlfriend    |
|with the shape of a balloon, it's hard to hear what he sings there. |           
|                                                                    |
|Please come with suggestions/critique or whatever, and rate it if   | 
|you want to!                                                        |
|                                                                    |
|Enjoy! :)                                                           |
